“I tell my friends down in midtown or Hells Kitchen that there’s a skunk problem up here and they don’t believe it,” resident Mark Bailey said. “They’re in front of every building…they’re not just in the parks, they’re all over.” [...]

Just a pic of the sidewalks in harlam should prove evidence enough.

Diane Lane is from New York City and played a skunk in "Ladies and Gentlemen: The Fabulous Stains," but that was in her younger days.

Before all the hate NYC bashing begins, Harlem has been gentrified for years. Inwood is in the process. For some reason, Inwood attracts people from the opera world. I have friends who live there. It’s coming along.

There are dozens of parks there. I’m not at all surprised that they have problems with animals. After all, parts of London are overrun by fox.

From another article:

“They are ground animals,” Horvath said. “But they will chew through the black plastic bags of trash.”

“The city should be out here giving out garbage cans,” Ackerman said.

Oh, sure, the CITY should give things away. How about residents being required to purchase and use trash cans?

Skunks would actually improve the smell of the area. Maybe they need a stockyard, a landfill, and a sewer treatment plant there to help the skunks overcome the overwhelming stench of the democrat infestation.

Skunk juice is sweet perfume compared to the foul odor concentrated in that cesspool of Washington, DC.
